When He was a young man, Jesus’ family moved from the countryside to Galilee, to the city of Capernaum. And there they established their building trade. Capernaum was a regional center located on the bank of a lake. In ancient times, the lake was called Chinnereth – and in Christ’s time, Genneseret. Today, we call it the Sea of Galilee. If you go there today, you’ll see that it’s a pretty lake – 13 miles long and about 8 miles wide. It’s deep blue and is located 800 feet below sea level in that natural rift between the two land masses of Asia and the Middle East. The climate there is subtropical. Peter and Andrew, James and John fished this lake for a living in Christ’s time. On the bank of this lake, Jesus fed the multitudes and spoke to them. On this lake, He calmed the wind, and He also walked on water there.
